About 3 Months of Waiting and 8 Days of Shipping




... from USA to Kota Kinabalu, finally the first book of Cassandra Clare's The Last Hour series has arrived to my doorstep! Thanks, Amazon!

I'm all nervous and already reread The Infernal Devices trilogy to prep myself for this sequel (as confirmed, a trilogy as well) and my gosh, I'm so excited to read Will and Tessa's Fairy Tale of London!

I'd like to apologise for lack of updates in here as with Covid-19, I haven't gotten out much and have been sitting around in my room, updating my skincare and sheet mask inventory; yes, I do have several spreadsheets for that and I've finished counting last night. The rough total is close to 1000 sheet masks! :D

I guess that's all for now and do stay tuned for more very soon! Until next time, take care!

Favourite Friday | Starbucks Caramel Pure Matcha Choc Chip Frappucino


I know, this beverage supposedly have Caramel drizzle but I was craving for caramel cheesecake with some macadamia nuts so I requested for the barista to omitted the drizzle and topped my whipped cream with chocolate drizzle instead.



Just look at the matcha powder! Definitely given me some odd aftertaste but I love it! It's like eating matcha dark chocolate I think and changing the milk to soy was indeed a lovely idea as it tones down the dairy affect on me a little bit. 

I do love it but I'm already looking forward to their V-day's crafts soon!

Are you over your winter beverages already or already craving for some panna cotta and jelly as we move towards hotter months?

Throwback Thursday | Dubuyo's Kimchi Soondubu and Deep-fried Boseot



I'm not sure I'm loving Google Photos rediscovering notification these days. So I had these delicious Kimchi stew filled with chicken cutlets and tofu a year ago and man, I'm literally drooling right now!




Whenever I had stew, I always ordered these crunchy deep-fried mushroom with sprinkles of hot chili powder as these went so well together.

Do you eat Korean food? Well, I grew up with Chinese cuisine and then about 15 years ago, I've discovered Thai and Japanese food so these days I'm indulging in a lot of Korean food thanks to budding Korean restaurants around the city.

Dubuyo is sister company to Chicken Rice Shop so everything is halal Insya Allah.

Music Monday | Beauty of the Dark by Mads Langer



The beauty of the dark is the beauty of you
I dream of dreaming dreams of you
But nightmares always block the view
I can't sleep

The beauty of silence is the noise of no words
When everything I listen for is here when you walk in the door tonight

Where is the light in your deep dark room?
A shock of white could save you from your shadow
Why is the dark behind the moon?
Out of reach until the light is shattered

The ugly things I do for beauty
If you could see what's real in me
Then maybe beauty wouldn't be so cruel

Where is the light in your deep dark room?
A shock of white could save you from your shadow
Why is the dark behind the moon?
Out of reach until the light is shattered

The beauty of the dark
The beauty of the dark is the beauty of you

Where is the light in your deep dark room?
A shock of white could save you from your shadow
Why is the dark behind the moon?
Out of reach until the light is shattered


Oh, God. I recently watched several episodes of The Vampire Diaries and this song just came on and I got reminded of hauntingly beautiful it is; literally on repeat on my iPod 10 years ago as I watched the series for the first time. lol

While most of the songs that I love and appreciate has to do with moon - I don't know, maybe I am descendant of werewolf in someway? Please don't ask me that. This song isn't exception to that and I can already imagine the songwriter was probably sitting at a corner of dark room staring at a girl while holding is guitar.

I hardly discover new songs these days as I kept coming back to my 2010s playlist. Typical Leo.

Signing off, take care!
